    I HAVE FISHED AT MARION THE LAST 3 WEEKENDS TOOK HOME 12 CHANNELS 4-9 LBS, 3 WEEKS AGO, TWO WEEKS AGO I TOOK HOME 8
    CHANNELS FROM 6 TO 12 LBS, WENT LAST WEEKEND AND GOT SKUNKED.
    THERE ARE FEEDERS IN COTTONWOOD COVE AND IN HILLSBORO COVE
    IF THEY HAVE FOOD INTHEM THEY WLLHAVE FISH AROUND THEM. ALSO
    ON THE FACE OF THE DAM GO TO THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE DAM AND LOOK FOR A PIPE COMMING DOWN THE DAM, AND A SMALL SIGN UP ON THE ROAD THAT CROSSES THE DAM, GO OUT ABOUT 200 YARDS NORTH
    AND THERE IS A HOLE THAT GETS CHUMMED ON A REGULAR BASIS, ALSO
    TRY THE STANDING TIMBER ACROSS FROM FRENCH CREEK, FISHSTRAIGHT UP AND DOWN IN THE TREES, THERE ARE TO MANY TREE YOU CAN'T SEE, AND YOU WILL LOOSE A LOT OF TACKLE IF YOU CAST OUT. YOU CAN GET YOUR LINE JERKED BIG TIME UP IN THE TREES GOOD LUCK RWG:big_smile:

    I haven't been out there yet this year but in years past the spillway was always a good place to catch some channel.
